Justin Bieber
's private jet touched down outside NYC for the Super Bowl -- and authorities immediately held him for questioning ... because of a strong odor of pot coming from his plane ... TMZ has learned.

We're told ... the plane was stopped after it arrived at Teterboro airport in New Jersey.  As we told you ... Justin, his dad and some friends were traveling there for Super Bowl parties.

Sources tell us law enforcement is holding the plane ... because they think there may be marijuana on board.  We're told the plane and the passengers are currently being searched ... but so far no pot has been found.

A source close to Bieber tells us, the passengers knew they'd be searched ... since they were flying into the U.S. from Canada.

Story developing ...

People who smoke everyday forget that people that don't get contact highs very easily.. he shouldn't be smoking in a vicinity near a pilot. idiot.

Ah haha. Wrong again!!!!! Geez leave Justin alone already. He's a kid making the same mistakes kids his age make. Big freaking deal. Glad they didn't find anything.

He may be a naive little twerp but this is getting out of hand on the authorities end. If anything, they're looking to make a buck by arresting the infamous "bad boy" Justin Beiber. It's been proven that the cops made up the drag-racing story and now this?! Come on, leave the kid alone.
